   6001.  Mar: before 1853 at Alabama AL to Daniels, Lucinda  Rebecca 6003. Died: 7 Oct 1883 at Teasdale MI aged 58.  Rode with Forrest in war between

   the state to the last Battle of Selma, Alabama

  

   By the end of the US Civil War almost all of the confederate arms and munitions were either manufactured in or distributed from Selma. The town was centrally

   located, had rail connections and access to river navigation. There were approximately 10,000 civilians employed in manufacturing.

  

   Even though the town was well fortified the Confederate Army was widely scattered. There was a four mile breastwork around the town that terminated at the

   river on both ends while fortifications on the north were aided by a large swamp. Defending the garrison was an almost defeated and undermanned

   Confederate army commanded by Generals Forrest, Armstrong, Roddy and Adams. By this time the attitude among the Confederate Generals was that the

   south was already defeated and any further resistance would only result in more unnecessary casualties. Never the less it was decided that Selma would be

   defended.

  

   It was important for the union army to capture Selma and cut off the supply line. General Sherman had previously made an attempt but was turned back at

   Meridian. In the winter of 1865 General Grant selected Major General James H. Wilson to lead an attack with three well equipped divisions of Cavalry

   consisting of nearly 1500 well trained men. The battle began around noon on April 2, 1865 and lasted well into the night. Though most of the officers and men

   escaped there were over 2,000 men taken prisoner. For the next three days was burning and pillaging was the order( Last updated: 01/04/2001)
